Healthy Bites

Alphabetz Montessori recognizes that quality nourishment and healthy food choices are a part of everyday meal experience. Many pediatricians have shown that nutritious food leads to better attention span, enhanced learning and improved health. Healthy foods are a hallmark of Montessori philosophy. In fact, Montessori was one of the first educators to recognize the connection between nutrition and the developing brain. An excellent explanation of how Montessori’s observations are supported by contemporary scientific understanding of brain development, by Montessori an and children’s nutritionist Jan Katzen-Luchenta, AMI, illustrates the link between nutrition and learning readiness. “If teaching is to be effective with young children, it must assist them to advance on the way to independence. —Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child.


Healthy Body & Mind

We place a lot of value on food served. Fresh cooked meals are served daily. Our child care food manager and staff ensure that all of the meals we serve meet the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The menu includes a wide selection of the foods, and fresh fruits and vegetables are included with every lunch. We offer a 100% nut-free menu, and other allergy-sensitive lunch options. We follow the Food Pyramid for Kids ensuring the children have a well-balanced diet through the day. We believe that balance, variety and moderation of many foods is the best way for children to get nutrition. Alphabetz is committed to enhancing family-food partnerships. To promote healthy eating habits, we engage children in fun activities, lesson plans and games. We also have a school garden which helps both parents and kids hands on learning experience of real healthy food and good nutrition. This also helps the kids to understand about environmental stewardship. Also, the children tend to be less picky when they learn to grow the food themselves.
